Meeting Point: Middleton Hall
University of Hull
Please join us for a walking tour of the exhibition with the artist.
Cairns are a common sight in the Icelandic landscape and were used as landmarks for people to find their way from one place to another.
The exhibition CAIRNS on the University of Hull Campus is an observation about the human being´s quest to find his right place in the world and his resilience to face his destiny. The sculptures themselves take on the form of human trail markers and the exhibition forms a sculpture trail, guiding visitors around specific areas and main routes stimulating thought and reflection. Each sculpture leads to the next one and helps visitors, students and staff of the university to find their way.
Please RSVP if you would like to join the tour.
